You are trying to acquire a property you dont seem to be comfortable with. You are questioning alot here. If you are new and starting out you may need to acquire some lesser jobs to build on. I think you could handle this and sometimes we just have to learn from our mistakes. If you have your insurance and the right equipment then go for it. You need to get comfortable estimating your time. I have been in business long enough I know how long it takes my crew to service different areas. That is key. How long you will spend on that property a week. If you think you will spend 4 hrs a week then figure what 4 hrs of your time is worth. Mine varies.. running mowers cost alot more than weeding beds or spreading mulch. You can be talking anywhere from $35 for weeding or general labor to $80 per hr to operate your mower. And Definitely clarify your tree trimming... as already mentioned.. insurance dont cover you on much. You are a lawn service not a tree service. You should start building relationships with tree trimmers, chemical applicators, and even irrigation contractors. Even though I perform irrigation work I still get in a bind and need some outside help to stay caught up . The worst thing you can do is lose a customer bc you were too busy. If you get it fixed timely even though you had a sub do it the customer is still happy . Your Bid range I am gonna suggest be in the 12k to 14 k range, but again, had to say on the pics alone.
Thank you all for the great advice!
